When I read the recipe for a green asparagus quiche, I thought to myself, I have to try this. I just love white asparagus, have never tried the green ones before. Thus a great opportunity to try it out in a beautiful savoury pie.
I enjoy baking quiches, but it is a real challenge to create a well baked pastry for the bottom, but this time it turned out quite successful.
Jaco made a really nice short dough that I blind baked in the oven (the pastry covered with baking paper and weighted down with dry rice so that it doesn’t turn completely brown)
When the filling was done, I poured the filling, made from eggs, grated cheese and crème fraiche, over the pre-cooked green asparagus and fried bacon. I placed it in the pre-heated (180°C) oven. While the quiche was baking, I made a fresh green salad to enjoy with it.
